Firefly Media Server was formerly known as mt-daapd. It was renamed when it adopted new features such as support for RSP and support for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X.
Firefly Media Server is not under active development. There has been an abortive effort to continue this project as Firefly2 Media Server. Since July 2009, development continues on a Linux/FreeBSD fork named forked-daapd. The latest version of forked-daapd is v21.0.
